What happens after tryouts?

As soon as tryouts are over on Sunday MSOS coaches will work together to select the training/match-day squads. An email will be sent stating if your player has been selected for our program or not. Players that have made it through the selection process will need to sign up via the COE forms sent in your email by Wednesday September 9th. There you will have the ability to opt in or out of games and sign the COE contract.

TRYOUT PRICE: There is no cost to try out.

COE Training Days and Time changes

Once players have been selected we will be holding training sessions on Friday evenings with the introduction of games on Saturdays. 

We will be holding training sessions at later times on Fridays to allow for travel. Training times will be added once we have made our final decision on players.

League information

First and foremost COE is a training program for players that want to get better. We have entered a league that allows us to field teams that will not need player cards and that will have no effect on players playing in Select or Academy soccer in clubs. The league is just additional soccer for our kids to enjoy. The league will be held in San Antonio. We would like to see all players join our league teams if selected but we also understand if players just want to train only. To enter our players into the league we just need to verify their age with a birth certificate or Passport. The League for the Fall will run as a 7 game league. If our teams do well we then potentially have an additional 3 matches to play quarter final, semi final and a Final. 

League Cost

League cost will be around $170.00 per player for 10 games but could be subject to slight change depending on how many teams we enter. Center Of Excellence Training will still stay at $70:00 per month.

After tryouts a confirmed cost will be set in place.

Return for Parents

We have worked together with the John Newcombe Ranch to keep everyone safe and well over the past months with the effect of Covid 19. I want to thank everyone for their patience and for respecting the rules. We are going to allow parents from Try-outs 4th & 6th September onwards to return to the fields and watch your kids in training and in games. Please remember to stay 6ft apart, please do not park at the side of the field and stay behind the coaching barrier at all times. Additionally we have higher volume of cars parking on Fridays so please use additional parking around the ranch. 


John Newcombe Ranch, 325 Mission Valley Rd, New Braunfels, TX 78132 

From 46, turn on to Mission Valley Road, take the third entrance on your left in to the Newcombe Ranch. You will see the main lodge ahead of you, turn left and follow the ranch road all the way around to the back of the ranch where you will arrive at the soccer field. PLEASE make sure to follow the ranch speed limit as children live on site. 


For 2011 - 2005 Birth Years we do ask that you attend both Friday & Sunday tryout sessions if possible. Please select which days if both your player will be attending below.
